    Spiral positions

    I was watching the ladies short programs from the Grand Prix Final today and Slutskaya, Arakawa and Rochette were all doing 2 different positions in their spiral sequences. I would like to know if I am wrong on this cuz I thought the rule stated that you had to do at least 3 different positions in the spirals. A lot of female skaters are only doing 2 so I have no idea... please inform me! :-)

    The edge change counted as two positions. It makes sense thought. Different edge postion counted as different postion since figure skating is all about the edge control.
